Sardine Run 2011 update

After an exceptional first week and good start to the second week the team were shorebound for four very frustrating days with an exceptionly freakish cut off low weather pattern. This has broken up the thousands of gannets, dolphins and sharks that provided exceptional diving for the first ten days. With twelve Brydes whales getting in on the action it was an awesome start. The weather has broken up the action but with fewer than 30% of the birds on Bird Island it should just be a matter of time for it to come together again.

Brumbies swim with sharks at Shark Park:

The Brumbies spent the morning swimming with the sharks of Shark Park. The guys were great and had a blast. As always Allen Walker was there to take the pictures - although in very poor visibility today.

Easter at Shark Park

The team have had excellent surface conditions but the inwater has been dissappointing. We still managed to have some fun though.

First Minke of the season:

A fine Easter Weekend of weather has our spirits up but the visibility has been dissappointing. The first Minke whale of the season was seen just south of Rocky Bay and spent over thirty minutes with a group of four boats. Hopefully this bodes well for the coming Sardine Run.
